is a Bichon mixed with a Chihuahua.

The Papichon, a Bichon Papillion hybrid, is
known to listen to commands and obey his owner.

You get a small dog (weighing between 8 and
12 pounds)with a solid temperament.
He’s devoted, smart, gentle, happy, energetic
and a bit of an explorer.
He has been described as a bit stubborn though
and pretty high energy, so he’s going to
need a bit of exercise to keep his energy
levels in check.
There’s not a lot to say about the Maltichon
that hasn’t been said about the Havachon.
The Maltichon is the cross between a Maltese
and a Bichon Frise.
Like the Havanese, the Maltese is considered
a Bichon breed.
The Maltichon’s activity level is a bit
lower than the Havachon making him an excellent
